Our work focuses on four key areas:
Water and Sanitation
Transform Africa supports poor communities to have increased access to water through the construction of boreholes, wells and dams, and help them improve sanitation and hygiene.
Transform Africa supports poor communities to improve their livelihoods through affordable micro-credit loans, and training in business management and wealth creation.
HIV and Health
Transform Africa supports communities to have increased access to improved HIV and Health services.
Youth Training for Employment
Transform Africa supports unemployed young people to engage in gainful employment through micro-credit loans, and vocational and apprenticeship training.
Transform Africa also work in the following areas:
We work with members of the Transform Network to offer technical services to local organisations in Africa to enable them to improve their effectiveness and thus better serve the communities they work with.
We raise funds and work with the partner organisations to support communities to find lasting solutions to poverty.
Specific areas we have been involved in include HIV prevention and management, Water and Sanitation including the construction of wells, (Microcredit and training in wealth creation for self-sufficiency and sustainable livelihoods), Apprenticeship and Vocational Training and Youth Employment.
Research and advocacy
We carry out research, lobbying and advocacy work on gender and North–South partnerships with a view to bring in African perspectives to transform gender, improve North–South partnerships and challenge some of the development paradigms on fighting poverty in Africa.
